At the Monaco Grand Prix, Mercedes- Benz was the favored team, but both Silver Arrows piloted by Stirling Moss and Juan Manuel Fangio encountered technical difficulties and Ascari took the lead. Unfortunately, Ascari’s lead was short-lived. His Lancia D50 suddenly swerved out of control in the harbor chicane, flew into the Monaco harbor, and sank. Ascari survived this potentially fatal crash, but four days later, motorsports fans around the world were shocked to learn of the death that their beloved and talented two-time world champion. Alberto Ascari had inexplicably crashed and died in a private test drive of a friend’s Ferrari.

The CMC Lancia D50, 1955 Monaco GP #26 is a tribute to the revolutionary spirit of the glorious Lancia D50, as well as Alberto Ascari, one of Italy’s greatest pre-war drivers.
